All Buffalo Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
Yeah I was going to order one until the price hike! 😡
Blimey, by quite a bit (shock) (y)
Price has increased OP please expire
My 3TB failed after 7 months when my son nudged it and it dropped from vertical standing position to its side- that was literally it! I know as I was watching it happen:) I have been really gutted to find it does not work after such minor incident... it’s almost like there is no protection for HDD inside- no rubber mounts or anything like that which explains why drive is so loud at times:/ So yeah, if you are prepared to store it’s somewhere very safe where there is no chance any one will have a chance to even touch it then go go it:) I am sure it will last into 2 years and more:) Ordered replacement and got original partially refunded by eBuyer which was huge disappointment on its own. I paid £75 for 3TB - got refunded £63 on the basis its more than 6 months old or other gibberish...not happy even though I could have buy 3TB again for £65 of eBuyer as need two of those for 2 different xboxes... I think I won’t be buying from them anymore as their return policy is a joke! My money will go somewhere else even though it’s a good price and decent drive (disregarding small accident!).
Anyone know how these compare to WD reliability wise?
Can highly recommend a visit to the cathedral and a spot of lunch at Zizzi if you're visiting.
Worth coming from Russia for these offers.
The bargains only pop up every once in a while, but always worth a peep.
Oh nice find, I wish my Waitrose did this.
If anyone is interested, buffalo mince (and other cuts) can be delivered from below. The price (£5/kg, less than half what I used to pay) is cheaper than normal mince, though delivery charges will have to go on top. https://www.thebuffalofarm.co.uk/shop/product/buffalo-steak-mince-5-x-500g
Nope,all still fresh. :D
Had buffalo steak whilst in India AMAZING better than beef steak any day, mums off to Iceland 🇮🇸
Nope found about 10 this is just a couple that I got
Of course they do, that's where Mozzarella comes from, it's called "fior di latte" if it's made from cow's milk
Would you buy this for the hard drive? So I can put it in my Synology NAS
I meant that I want to use it like a proper NAS drive... Is this possible? If so, how?
What’s the difference between these and the portable (apart from the obvious!!) my son has a gaming pc and the hard drive is full... so need another for his pc?? Thanks
Hardware encryption. Grrrr. Pain in the neck. If the controller goes faulty you've no chance of recovering your data by sticking the drive on a different controller.
OP .. "I figured it's because it's a powered device as opposed to usb powered.". I remember addressing something similar to this 'situation' of yours on a previous Thread here a few Month's back, lol. Though I can't personally comment upon the OP's Deal that you previously purchased or whatever?, but ... I believe 'firmware' of your Shield device may prevalently be your real issue here? (between your 2 hard drive device's). I doubt the 'issue' of usb or non usb is the prevailing crux here?. Not every third-party 'device' (Smart TV, Android Box, and such like), is capable of more/beyond that of perhaps 1tb hard drive and stuff ... How you were able to get even 1 of those 4tb hard drives to work on it however though, is beyond me?, lol. You managed to sort one out still, so good for you. :-)
It will be usb 3, probably 5400 RPM. I have a 4TB external and it reads and writes at 155 MB/s, which is quite fast!
Is it going to be 7200rpm and usb3? I would always say, the faster, the better but then again would you notice few seconds difference of load times between 5400 and 7200 in real life (talking games on consoles as original drives installed inside consoles are dead slow). Probably not...
Yeah, same here. It is very noisy at times and I have already applied some sticky felt feet to the bottom and vibrations through case are still loud. I would sort this out in a matter of minutes if I could open the case as suspect its to do with drive mounts inside but don’t want to be losing over 12 months of warranty so just put up with it:/ Knowing how noisy it is, I would have gone with different brand but it was cheap, looks decent and its fast being 7200rpm and usb3!:)
That reminds me I've got a 20% off code to use at Western digital. I can get a 4 TB for £68.
Low stock at £45 now - bought myself one and this cheaper one to see which one I prefer in person.
An outrageous bargain! Well done.
Thanks op Bought the larger one for 15 inch laptop arrived today , bargain as it did go down to £48!
Definitely 36cm width. Fits a 13" laptop comfortably.
Can anyone who bought confirm the dimensions. This one says H28.00cm x W26.00cm x D10.00cm, though there's one in a different colour but same bag that says H28.00cm x W36.00cm x D10.00cm. Probably a typo but I was wondering if the width is 26cm or 36 cm?
Thanks I'll expire. Price jumped up a lot (annoyed)
Now £108.93 - not worth it
Do you know wich hdd is inside? I need to use it for my nas .
May and Squaking sounds. Brexit anyone?
I have a 3TB Buffalo purchased in 2013. Works great BUT I noticed on idle, the HDD May start making squaking sounds.
5tb reconditioned Western Digital MyCloud for £119.99 - https://www.wdc.com/en-gb/products/wd-recertified/my-cloud.html?source=cj# Wait or splash out?
I ordered one a month ago when they were marked as "arrives within 2 to 4 weeks". Still not arrived. My current delivery guesstimation is "Arriving 3 Aug - 15 Aug"
Im between this or a refurb WD My Cloud, but no idea which one is better. Any input is mich appreaciated. Thanks
I got a Buffalo terrastation 8gb from Amazon for around £160 a little while back and I seem to remeber you can reinstall fresh drives and firmware by running the update or booting from a usb disk.
With buffalo nas, the nas os is held on the drive meaning you cannot switch out the drive easily. You will need to clone the drive if you wish to do that. If the nas os is corrupt you may not be able to easily access you files. Had an issue with one of these in the office a few years back
I would help you if I could. But it was a few years ago and I cant remember.
Many thanks. I've tried a similar approach and only found a foreign article on opening the case. I'll keep searching!
If it's under warranty then don't touch it or the won't fix it. I just googled it and found a guide about how to pull it apart. It wasn't difficult. The hardest part was reinstalling the OS on a new disk.
How did you open the case without destroying it? My disk controller or ram has died and i want to remove the disk before sending off to buffalo.
Yeah I’m still trying to decide. I can live without the app too but like to have it as a backup - I currently have a MyCloud and rarely ever use the app, it’s just nice to know that I can if I need to.
RRP is bull, I paid £200 a couple of years ago for one of these. Heat added.
Reported unexpired (use the three dots)
Still a good deal heat added
The reviews mention WD blue.
What HDD come with this anyone know.
Roflmao i thought I was the only person who says it as it is brutally!
Doesn't matter if they have it tattooed on their ass cheek it doesn't change consumer law. They are 100% legally obligated to accepted DOA returns, the contract of sale is between you and them and consumer law dictates that they must either fully refund or exchange products that arrive faulty. This INCLUDES any postage to return the DOA product, the buyer should not be a PENNY out of pocket. Come on guys, know your consumer rights, don't let these assholes fob you off!
I’ve recently purchased this with twin 3TB drives and used the RAID1 option to give mirrored storage. I was impressed with the build quality and ease of setup. It may have some average reviews but it works extremely well with a MAC setup.
It's in their returns policy, supposedly to speed things up and for newbies , if is worth challenging in court is another matter but i believe ebuyer have a similar approach, 6mth warranty on items, after that it's back to the manufacturer to sort stuff out
Is that even legal?
Like this needs heat adding...
Great deal, good to add into your cooking too!!
That is called impulse buying, buddy.
This the type that is already basically mixed with butter. It's the normal Franks that you want to mix with a bit of melted butter to make a top buffalo sauce. Which I actually think is better as the Wing Sauce version is almost a bit too 'watered down' in flavor, though it's a minor thing and is still great. I'm just picky as an American who has loved buffalo wings for many, many years.
I don't think you need to worry too much about the bbe of a hot sauce for at least a good few months (lol)
Mine was dispatched today. Great price. Cheers OP!
Could this be used to save my ps4 games?
Thanks, have made the purchase to replace a Samsung drive (definitely won't be recommending!), Although its currently out of stock the order has gone through; Temporarily out of stock. Order now and we'll deliver when available.
Ah right! Sorry but was on a tablet and forgot that when oos amazon puts the next in stock price. Thanks!
Good deal for the price - heat.
I’m a regular customer of GB been shopping here for years and found them to be bang on everytime.
73% reduction in price. This site has a number of other deals if you are interested in motorcycle stuff.
As a CT deal not bad although I’ve had my head turned by the in store pizza counters can’t beat them!
My fav at the min! Heat
Mine arrived without any packing and the corner of the box damaged. I got onto Amazon and got a £28 refund
Mine shipped today:)
Delivered today, 2 Toshiba 3tbs inside
Mine is on its way, being delivered today. Does anyone know what HDD brand they received with their buffalo Nas?
Mine says 'Dispatching now' along with 'We need a little more time for a delivery estimate' Kinda weird it's normally one or the other. Progress anyway, looks like we might actually get these. Thanks OP (y) Edit: Dispatched now for delivery Tues :)

Qnap 453a down to £399.99 on Amazon now. Wish I could afford it.
With NAS you really need to stick to Synology or QNAP. Other brands are worth avoiding.
Same here Mission...
Doh! My bad. Thanks
I presume you mean raid 1 which mirrors data from one drive to another (highfive)
Speaking personally, I'd always recommend more than one drive in a NAS so you can use RAID (redundant array of independent disks) techniques to keep a copy of the data in case one of the NAS drives crashes. FYI I'm running a 7 year old 2 drive Buffalo NAS (configured as RAID 0 - each disc has identical data) and it's been totally reliable (so far). The personal cloud facility on my old NAS has never worked, but that's not a feature I need. Hopefully they've fixed this with newer models.
its complete, 2tb hard drive is included
Is it complete or do I have to buy a hdd ?
